This article describes the experience of using Action-Research as the method to study the educational reality of roboticsteaching in the Computer Engineering Degree, to improve its comprehension and to achieve its transformation in line withthe European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The systematic process of the educational practice modification is detailed:problem detection, plan formulation to solve it, implementation in the classroom and evaluation of the obtained resultsbased on the evidence collection and analysis. These evidences are taken from questionnaires, students performance andteacher reflection during different academic years, applying Action-Research in the classroom.
